Looking Ahead To Free Agency

With running back Eddie Lacy and 60% of the offensive line due to become unrestricted free agents in 2017, general manager Ted Thompson will face his most challenging offseason since the Summer of Favre. And while 2016 won’t be quite as imposing, it won’t be a walk in the park either. Six starters and kicker Mason Crosby

Tackle Can’t Be Ignored Again

General manager Ted Thompson hasn’t selected an offensive tackle in the past two drafts. It’s safe to assume that streak is going to end next spring. With Bryan Bulaga rehabbing yet again, David Bakhtiari stagnating and Don Barclay proving once and for all he belongs inside, no position on the team is in greater need of reinforcements.

Backups Save The Day

The Packers played the defending NFC champion Seahawks without three of their best players on offense and two starters on defense. And while quarterback Aaron Rodgers was brilliant as usual, Green Bay wouldn’t have won without big efforts from four backups. The Packers needed to move the ball effectively on the ground in order to slow

Preview: Packers vs. Seahawks

Green Bay played Seattle last September without Bryan Bulaga, and thanks to a knee injury suffered by the veteran right tackle in practice on Thursday, history will repeat itself on Sunday night. The Packers can only hope the outcome of the game will be different. The two-time defending NFC champs won by nearly three TDs a

High And Lows Of Camp

Now that training camp and the preseason is mercifully over, let’s take a look back at some of the highs and some of the lows from the past six weeks: Biggest surprises (players): Former UCLA star Brett Hundley was the most impressive rookie quarterback I’ve seen in over three decades of following the Packers… Third-round pick

Help Wanted Needed At Tackle

I understand that general manager Ted Thompson picks the best available player, but he needed to make sure the best available player at some point in either of the past two drafts was a tackle. By ignoring that position since 2013, the Packers now find themselves without a legitimate backup to starters David Bakhtiari and

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PIT

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 14 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Steelers: 1) Undrafted free agent Alonzo Harris probably played himself off the 53-man roster by dropping a couple of easy passes. The 240-pound former Louisiana-Lafayette star has shown

Bakhtiari Kneeds To Stay Healthy

Based strictly on last season’s performance, David Bakhtiari might not be one of the 20 best players on the Packers. But because of his position, I ranked him as the fourth most important player for 2015. That’s why there’s reason to be at least a little worried when the third-year left tackle misses multiple practices

Barclay Continues To Struggle

Other than Aaron Rodgers throwing 19 passes, Thursday night was a typical first preseason game. It’s hard to judge young players due to the level of competition they’re facing, but I’m going to give it a try. Here’s my review of Green Bay’s 22-11 win over the Patriots: -The Packers better hope David Bakhtiari and

Ha Ha Poised For Big Season

Packers Notes will provide updates from camp whenever we have a person in attendance, so check back for the latest news. Robert Tahan contributed to this report. -Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has a chance to be very good in 2015 after a solid rookie year. The former No. 1 pick from Bama arrived in Green Bay with
